We all have moments of grace in our lives, glimpses of God's presence and God's mystery. The Word made flesh, God-with-us, inspires these moments and sometimes lets us see and feel that transformation in grace. In 100 Days Closer to Christ, Father William C. Graham invites us to consider these moments and experience the transforming presence of God in our lives.

These compelling essays invite you to immersion in joyful hope: dreams, disciplines, and promises; fond embraces and quiet satisfaction; plans and prospects; awe and wonder. The chapters consider moments of grace through encounters that resemble lectio divina, inviting reflections flowing from God's word or the church's life of prayer, giving flashes of insight and meaning on a pilgrim's way.

The essays in 100 Days Closer to Christ are meant to inspire thoughtful prayer. Whether they are seasonal or attitudinal, each seeks to stand before Mystery in awe, wonder, praise, and thanksgiving.

Reviews

Bill Graham is a wonderfully natural writer, gifted with musically colloquial language, radiant good sense, and numerous insights, always freshly phrased, into the ways of the spirit. He is generous in his attitudes and imaginative in his use of passages from Scripture which enhance and support our lives. There is a living pulse to his heartfelt sentences. If your faith should happen to be at a low point, these luminous pages will restore you.

Get this book and take it with you everywhere. And as you're riding a bus or eating your lunch, read it for 5 minutes (that's what it took me to read most of the essays). I'm pretty sure I can guarantee that you'll have the most spiritually fulfilling bus ride or lunch of your life.
